Here's another MTD 990 for sale in the UK. It's complete though I think the exhaust (muffler) is wrong and the belt guards missing on the mower deck. Here are some photos of it. I am tempted but the seller is selling too high in my opinion (£695 or $1079). What's your thoughts on its condition?

I think that is the factory exhaust.

Exhaust looks right to me also. At least Very similar mounting, and have seen others with variations in same place. I don't think those decks HAD belt guards at time. Looks like a $300 to $400 tractor if around Me.  Course being Way out in oblivion in the world, might make it more valuable??

Do you guys think it's capable of cutting two/three feet tall grass/ vegetation as a one off job. I would mow in dry conditions on a high setting in low box and the plan would be to mow regularly afterwards.

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

The muffler is correct, Columbia, regular MTD  use this Nelson muffler as well as White, this is the first one other than a White that I have seen that has the guard. The mufflers with guards have threaded tabs welded on to the muffler.

I would not mow a 2-3 ft field with mine. I have done what you are describing but only to widen my regular cutting area. In the past I have cut high weeds and damaged the deck by hidden things like small stumps and rocks. The blade baffle bent in and the blade ripped it off jamming the deck. 

 

Too high a price, maybe half that.

I agree with you on the price and it m reluctant to wreck it on a area I am not familiar with.

Thanks everyone

The tractor never sold as the price is far too high. Be interesting to see if he drop the price again. Originally had it at £895 ($1396) !
